Resources[edit]

Resources list has been moved to Commons:Chart and graph resources. --Timeshifter (talk) 20:11, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Resource list can be moved, but not to talk page[edit]

MDD. I reverted your blanking of the chart resource list. Many pages, categories, and projects link to this list. Discuss things first instead of deleting lots of stuff. See Commons:Don't be bold.

The list can be moved after talk. I agree that the chart resource list needs to be moved. I am working on it. I moved the map resource list awhile back from the main map category page. See Commons:Map resources. --Timeshifter (talk) 00:20, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

It sounds like you agree it should be moved, so what's to talk about? Rocket000 (talk) 18:11, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
MDD moved the resource list to the talk page before there was any discussion about moving it anywhere. So I wrote my above comment. After I suggested we move it to a separate page he has since agreed to this on another page. So, I guess there is nothing more to talk about. --Timeshifter (talk) 18:41, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Sources for more charts[edit]

I believe that putting User:Timeshifter/Template:Diagrams charts graphs on the category page would eventually get more people involved in helping out here.

{{User:Timeshifter/Template:Diagrams charts graphs}} produces this show/hide box:


Click the "show" link to see possible locations for more charts. Some of the charts need to be categorized by theme in Category:Charts by theme.

Not all the diagram categories in the show/hide box contain charts. Some of the diagram categories contain graphs. The individual graphs need to be more specifically categorized, too. --Timeshifter (talk) 16:03, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Charts and graphs[edit]

The Charts and graphs gallery is just presented in the introduction by Timeshifter with the words:

For links to galleries explaining and showing the many types of charts and graphs go here.

Now I removed this text. At the moment I think that gallery isn't explaining any thing. It is just confusing. Even more confusing is to direct in that direction, while:

  • there is a gallery chart, which is showing most of the different types of charts at the moment.
  • there is gallery plot, which is showing most of the different of plots at the moment
  • and there is a gallery specific diagram types under construction to show all different types of diagrams.

I would appreciate to keep it this simple here. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 10:52, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

P.S. One other thing. The announcement is pretending there is an overview of graphs. I think this isn't true. We are far from that. See also Category talk:Line charts
